Raggedy Progress

Making progress in spite of a spoiled Miss Cassie who has gotten in the habit of yipping to get a treat, of course while in the middle of sewing, and what feels like a sinus infection coming on I did manage to finish clothes for the 25" Raggedy Andy yesterday! Raggedy Ann is looking quite fashionable in her orange dress with aqua and peach flowers with a polka dot apron, both dress and apron are made from Denise Schmidt fabric. It feels so soft and is such nice cotton. I look and I smile! Andy is going to be outfitted in a navy and aqua plaid, Denise Schmidt fabric, with navy pants made of Kona Cotton. Also he will have his adorable sailor like hat.

 I hope to have a set in each size in my Etsy Shop! If you go look now you will find a big basket of parts (smile). All have been kitted. Oh that makes me feel so organized. I plan to have clothes for the traditional red, white and blue as well.

 The pattern I am using is well over 20 years old. There was only 1 piece missing and that was an easy fix. All have been organized in envelopes by size of body and size of clothes. There is 25", 20" and 15".

Ann is getting excited to see Andy soon! Can you tell by her big smile?
All have a heart with "I Love You" embroidered in it!

Just a brief to bring up to date.

  5. I was so pleased to see the Raggedy Ann doll. When my children were small (35-40 years ago) I made the same dolls for them and made many to give away and to sell a few. My girls still have there dolls and I bet yours will be saved, too. I love your fabric choices. I have no blog. My email: trishbarrilleaux@gmail.com
